Slam Dunk

2008_02_09_slamdunk3.jpgNext Saturday, Toronto Poetry Slam brings you the last slam of the season, with some of the city’s brightest and wordiest battling it out for the last remaining place in the semi finals. Finalists will have a shot at the 2008 Toronto Poetry Slam Team, which competes at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word and the US National Poetry Slam (this year to be held in Madison, Wisconsin).
This month’s event also features a guest spot from North Carolina’s Quentin “Q” Talley—spoken word artist and Respect the Mic Coach. And, as ever, your host will be artistic director David “Big Deal” Silverberg.
Cover is $5 and signups are at 7:30 p.m., with the slams starting at 8 p.m in the Drake Underground.
